Advice on Implications of Cookie Legislation


The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) is implementing legislation related to use of cookies on web sites.  We are involved in an activity which will summarise the implications of the legislation and provide guidance on implementation strategies.


Work started: 1 Oct 2011

Planned completion date: 29 Feb 2012

Actual completion date: 16 April 2012


This work involves setting up a small group of interested parties within the web management community, with additional input being provided by the JISC Legal service. Monitoring of advice from government bodies will be carried out and the implications shared across the sector.  The approaches being taken across a small number of institutions  to conform with legislation will be shared and advice provided on emerging best practices.


An article was published in the JISC Inform ejournal.

A series of blog post have been published.

In addition a workshop session will be held at the IWMW 2012 event.



This work was led by Brian Kelly.
